35 children attend CTHM Cowboy Camp

 

Smoke filled the air behind the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum. After abandoning the beans on their plates that were not quite cooked, the children sat in a half-circle. Following Matt Thigpen’s lead, the children shook their music makers and sang. Nearby, children posed for photos on a longhorn.
 
Thirty five participants traveled back in time last week to participate in the fourth annual Cowboy Camp at the museum.
 
Among other activities, participants learned to rope, tie knots and tool leather.

New school construction planned at The Quarry

 

It appears Cuero ISD has decided to build a new Hunt Elementary School in The Quarry, a housing development located behind Cuero Jr. High and Intermediate schools.
 
Residents of The Quarry were invited to an informational meeting with school officials last week where the design and location of the new school were discussed.
 
The new school would be located on 14 acres in the southwest corner of the development and would replace the current Hunt Elementary located on North Hunt St.
 
Construction for this new school will not begin until 2015 and it should be open in time for the 2016-17 school year.
